  1. Voyageurs National Park: Located in northern Minnesota, Voyageurs National Park is known for its pristine lakes, rugged landscapes, and rich history. The park is characterized by a network of interconnected waterways, including Rainy, Kabetogama, Namakan, and Sand Point Lakes, making it a popular destination for boating, canoeing, and fishing. The park offers opportunities for wildlife viewing, hiking, and stargazing.
